I think the most talented people are often the most depressed.
I'd agree with you and say that many of those talented souls also have a great sense of humor.
Oh thank you!!
True in some cases. They hide behind it to not show weakness.
A man goes to see a doctor. Complains that he's depressed. That he doesn't enjoy life, doesn't have fun doing the things he used to do, just stays in bed all day and mopes.
The doctor says, "The great clown Pagliacci is in town. He's the funniest man in the world. Go see him. He will make you laugh."
The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor," he says. "I *am* Pagliacci."
I think depression, despair, gives you a form of freedom that is useful in humour, but we can still be funny without being suicidal.
i always thought this must be the case....i mean, look at robin williams. in addition, how much would it SUCK to reduce the magic of hilarity to an algorithm?
I think that is very likely but not a prerequisite to severe depression.
Apparently people who dress up as clowns( circus's etc)... are usually very depressed people.
Not necessarily it means dear doctor Eve..!!
Not all funniest are depressed unless they wanna fall into those trap..lol
That is true in many cases.
well then I should have been hilarious, you think people laugh when I'm not looking?
And Dr Evangeline wins the Nobel prize for her discovery.

Not believing this one.
Haha you made me smile doctor! :D
